How can knowing your genetic code help you? Genetic conditions, ones you are born with or are predisposed to, affect people of all ages, race, and gender. The treatment for these conditions are not so universal and recent research shows that patient-specific treatment can produce a better response and reduce the risk of side effects. Knowing what diseases you’re predisposed to can even allow you to take preventive actions to drastically decrease your chances of getting the disease. Emerging technologies, such as CRISPR-Cas9, zinc finger, and other gene therapies, have brought personalized medicine to the forefront of medical research and hope for finding cures to genetic diseases.
